In our first meeting we will review where you are now; where you want to go; and what it will take to get there.
We will also find out what is important to you about money? It may be a strange question, but the answer is not the same for everyone.
We want this to be VERY clear. So clear you can taste it. When you have a clear purpose, this creates the strong motivation needed to achieve goals.
Once we are clear about your long-term goals - your purpose for making and managing money, we can move onto where you are now in relation to that long-term goal.
We need to get a real assessment of your current financial situation.
This will inform our discussion of what your needs are and where we want to go.
The most efficient way to work together is through telephone, Skype or other internet streaming services. This gives us more flexibility in scheduling and location - no need to meet in person! And we can deal with issues "in the moment" if necessary.
CLDI’s coaching services are highly effective at helping small business owners and others gain ground on their financial goals. Coaching is a series of (mostly) telephone sessions to identify or clarify a client’s goals and then determines how to proceed given their current financial and life situation. CLDI develops a unique curriculum for each client depending on their specific needs. CLDI will create a coaching contract to guide sessions.
Coaching helps clients develop a psychology around money that is positive and productive. Coaching clients become more confident in financial decisions and develop self-supporting behaviours. CLDI coaching clients learn:
CLDI provides support to coaching clients so they stay on track or adjust behaviors as necessary. Peggy does this by ensuring that you have the positive beliefs and attitudes to get where you want to go
Income Tax Services
No one should pay more taxes than necessary. CLDI has in-depth knowledge and experience with the Canadian tax regime that applies to individuals and the self-employed (not-incorporated). CLDI prepares Canadian tax returns for the current tax year as well as past years.
Comprehensive Financial Planning
CLDI’s comprehensive financial planning services result in a document that prescribes the financial path towards a client’s established goals. A financial plan is a living document that is meant to be revisited updated from time to time.
CLDI’s mentoring services are intended to provide occasional expert advice to clients, who otherwise prefer to manage their own finances, when they really need it. Mentoring can deliver guidance with budgeting, targeted savings or even developing scenarios for retirement projections.
Through mentoring, clients can learn answers to questions like:
